is the second amendment. i continue my objection to the provision. mr. mccain: may i be recognized? the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: what we have here after 12 hiewrs today, eight hours yesterday and 42 amendments and many more coming in a manager's package, what we have is a situation where the senator from new york because of his passion which he just are a articulated refuses to allow the senator from oklahoma his rights as a senator, and that would be, since we have -- since we have taken up this legislation with amendments and votes with 51-vote majority in -- as applicable, we have moved through, i'm very proud to say, a very i think good process that i think all of us can be proud of. but the senator from new york because of his passion and commitment and belief, all of which i respect, will now prevent the senator from oklahoma from having his amendment considered. why? because he's afraid he will lose. the senator from south carolina and the senator from new hampshire and i have been losing all day long. and i'm passionate about that. but i woul
at 2:00 p.m. mr. mccain: inquiry of the chair, what are we waiting for? mr. levin: mr. president? the presiding officer: to get on the amendment offered by the senator from colorado. the senator from michigan. mr. levin: first, i would ask unanimous consent that my statements for the amendments be inserted into the record at this point. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. levin: secondly, i understand that senator baucus and senator march are on their -- senator murray are on their way and wish five minutes each to speak relative to this amendment. i would ask unanimous consent that between now and 1:00 that they -- that five minutes then be allocated to each of those two senators and that the amendment then still would be the pending amendment. i ask unanimous consent that we now proceed to the amendment of senator mccain, and when those two senators arrive and are recognized, that they be allowed to speak for five minutes each on the udall amendment. the presiding officer: is there objection to the request for extra time for senator baucus and senator murray? without
was closer. and mr. romney did beat mr. mccain in terms of the number of ballots cast. which is either exciting or just population growth, depending on your perspective. but if somebody tells you that john mccain got more votes for mitt romney, that's not true. last one. same game round three. things people are saying about the election that aren't true, but it makes them feel better to say it any way. this guy is named dean chambers. he ran the website unskewed polls. it became famous for being hi lairously wrong about polling in the presidential race. it said that everybody else's polling assumptions were wrong and if you fix those assumptions, you would see just how much of a landslide mitt romney was going to win the election by. unskewed polls said mitt romney wins florida by four points. he wins new hampshire by two. he wins iowa by three points. a romney blowout in virginia. he's up by six. mr. romney did not win florida or new hampshire or iowa or virginia. he didn't win any of those states, let alone by the margins predicted. so it became a new measurement of wrong. there are
's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio, florida, pennsylvania, virginia, new hampshire, new mexico and thef today in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he seemed quite confident that they were going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win in all those states. and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in these last four days of the campaign. there are patterns to how presidential elections end. some of the same stuff happens every four years. specifically, in 1992, the republican candidate was poppy bush. george h.w. bush. the day before the election that year he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and then the next day, he lost
, but there are signs she is making sure she is well positioned for the future if she and mr. mccain lose. zen days before the '08 election it became clear whatever they were saying about how confident they were that they definitely were going to win, the plans republicans were making and the way they were positioning themselves, including to the press, indicated otherwise. that was october 28th, 2008. seven days before election day. now this past week it's anonymous paul ryan loyalists speculating about all the wonderful things paul ryan will do after mitt romney and he lose this election on fuse. then this past weekend a possible case of revenge for the loose lipped comments to the a.p. about paul ryan's post mitt romney future. check this out. this is amazing. this is from politico.com and kudos to them for getting it. campaign insiders say chris christie was actually mitt romney's first choice for the republican ticket. people involved in the election process said the campaign believed no one would be more in depth and persuasive at delivering romney's message. advisers thought christie would e
and legislative gifts to minorities in obama care and some of the other things. the latest thing with mr. mccain and lindsay graham saying they were going to do anything to block ambassador rice from becoming secretary of state. and we're headed toward the fiscal cliff. how do you feel about that? >> nothing has changed from the election. you have the same players and same breakdown of the government. if anybody thought we were going to have big change, that may have been optimistic. >> what i think is interesting, though, is paul ryan has disappeared from the scene. he was of course one of the biggest folks -- biggest spokesperson for the fiscal cliff. >> the urban people that turned out again. class war in another way. guys, get it together. like howard. >> weather wise, clouds out there. temps around 50 with a mix of sun and clouds today. tomorrow 54, more sunshine. saturday and sunday look okay now. maybe a shower late sunday night into monday. monika? >>> on the northbound side of 95, at least the accident in woodbridge is gone, but here's a look at the delay. a little further north it's ed
. the presiding officer: is there objection? it is so ordered. mr. mccain: mr. president, i just want to say all of these amendments have been cleared on our side. the presiding officer: is there okay? so ordered. the senator from michigan. mr. levin: i would ask unanimous consent that dr. jim malakowski, an air force fellow assigned to the office of senator conrad be granted floor privileges for the remainder of the debate on s. 3254. the presiding officer: is there objection? so ordered. mr. mccain: i move to reconsider the last vote. a senator: are we in a quorum call? a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from new hampshire is recognized. ms. ayotte: thank you, mr. president. i want to talk this morning about an amendment that i had intended to offer but i'm not going to be offering today because there are -- there is an important portion of the house armed services committee that covers my concerns, and that was the amendment that i had drafted that is cosponsored by senators lieberman and collins, and i appreciate their support. it would be to establish an east coast
that mr. romney received even fewer votes for president than john mccain did back in 2008. turns out that is not true. it may have looked like that on election night or on the day after the election. but millions of votes aren't counted right after the election. it takes days and even weeks after the election until you get all the vote in. the fact is that president obama did beat both of these candidates pretty easily. neither was a close election. but mr. romney was closer. and mr. romney did beat mr. mccain in terms of the number of ballots cast. which is either exciting or just population growth, depending on your perspective. but if somebody tells you that john mccain got more votes for mitt romney, that's not true. last one. same game round three. things people are saying about the election that aren't true, but it makes them feel better to say it any way. this guy is named dean chambers. he ran the website unskewed polls. it became famous for being hi lairously wrong about poll iingn the presidential race. it said that everybody else's polling assumptions were wrong and if you
-- from arizona, senator mccain. mr. mccain: mr. president, i would like to express my appreciation for senator lieberman and senator collins' hard work on this. we have had some disagreements. i still believe that if we could have, say, five amendments that could be voted on and debated, i think we could move forward with this bill. i really believe that. and i would like to see if possibly even after -- right after this vote if we could reach some agreement between the leaders and ourselves that we could say that there would be five pending amendments and perhaps we could go ahead and debate and vote on those. i, again, think we have some very significant differences, but i -- the fact that the chairman and the two cochair -- whatever the hell they call themselves -- have worked incredibly hard on this issue, and they deserve debate, and i hope that they would understand that we are seeking, like, five amendments. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that just in the remaining time, i really appreciate what my friend from arizona has said, and i not only join him
davis, senator lindsey gramm, lt. governor jerry he -- kerry heli, governor bobby jindal, mrs. mccain senator john mccain, governor rick perry, senator marco rubio, senator rick santorum, governor john sununu, senator john thune, senator pat to me -- pat toomey, congressman steve javits. ladies and gentlemen, from the great state of ohio, lt. governor mary taylor. [applause] crowd: four more days! >> alright, you guys. are we ready to do everything we can in ohio to let mitt romney and paul ryan at the next president and vice president of the united states -- to elect mitt romney and paul ryan as the next president and vice president of the united states? this is outstanding. i have been a lot of campaign rallies over the last couple of weeks and i have decided i have boiled down my reasons to supporting mitt romney down to three. the first, president obama comes to ohio and like to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that is not true. it is the worst but governor kay sick and i have done with all of the -- it is the work that the governor and i have done with
. there was a time when i regarded mr. mccain as a gentleman. i am sad that this is not one of those moments. we see this great senator rushing off to a press event rather than going to the briefing on the facts. in his zeal to bend and ran -- to vent and rant as a result of the elections. the comments that she is not so bright, that she is untrustworthy -- these are comments that beg the question, when you look at her laudable resonate, much of which you heard from our distinguished delegates holmes nortmorton. so we are asking for them to walk back those comments. joining me here -- and i'm going to stop my comments at this point and call upon my good friend, the just elected chair of the congressional black caucus, rip marsha fudge from the district of ohio. -- rep. marcia fudge from the district of ohio. >> i am going to be brief also. i know when you lose, you get angry. but do not take it out on someone who had nothing to do with a loss. glenn yourself. how you say that someone was susan rice's background is not qualified? where did you finish in your class? i know one of them finished in the
mccain. >> thank you mr. chairman and i would like to thank our distinguished witness for joining us this morning and for his many years of impressive service in uniform. let me start by saying a word about general john allen, our commander in afghanistan, who we had expected to testify today on his nomination to be commander of the u.s. european command and supreme allied commander. while the committee wades the conclusion of the defense department's inspector general investigation, i continue to believe that general allen is one of our best military leaders and i continue to have confidence in his ability to lead the war in afghanistan as well as to serve and to post for which he has now been nominated. general dunford i'm grateful for your willingness to accept this nomination to serve as commander of u.s. forces in the international security assistance force in afghanistan, but i also believe that if you are confirmed you will have a difficult road ahead of you. i think our mission in afghanistan is a very serious and is at a very serious and troubling crossroads and much of the
. >> and senator kelly ayotte, lindsey graham and john mccain mrs. calling for a bipartisan senate panel to investigate the attack that left four americans dead. and a stunning endorsement set to be revealed tomorrow, but we have a sneak peek. nearly 500 former admirals and generals independent from mitt romney's campaign set to endorse him. and they'll run a full page ad in the washington times tomorrow and they're paying for the ad on their own. two days ago, they promised to send a generator from the canceled new york city marathon to areas hit by sandy. >> and a made it clear that all the assets that this marathon currently has generators, equipment, food, water, will be redeployed to people who need it. >> gretchen: but the new york post reporting that some the generators sat idle yesterday in a rental company's parking lot in new jersey and ten heaters hooked up in a medical tent for the marathon, even though they're no long her needed. >> brian: and the marathon people say they blame hostile media reaction to them holding the marathon and sponsors pushing them to canceled. they'd
, not only do they not match obama, they didn't match john mccain, fell short of john mccain by a couple million votes, so what happened? >> look, i think their organizational structure was in place, but this again, to get to the way mr. romney ran his campaign. somebody made an interesting point to me this week and said, you know, the very end he wasn't enthusing big crowds, he was enthusing people who should have been with them from the start. and when he finally turned after the denver debate and finally got momentum. it wasn't enough time to bring in the undecided voters and people that were sort of marginal in the end because he spent so much of this time, campaign, instead letting obama define him and deciding to run a referendum campaign on the president. >> what about the minority vote, asians, hispanics, jason, they went even bigger numbers for president obama this year, than four years ago. >> oh, sure, i mean, that's-- he got, particularly latinos, this were more of them, they made up larger percentage of the electorate and won more of them. and that may have been the key, par
counties, it is a case all over the country, they are underperforming and we are overperforming and mr. axelrod can spin it how he wants, about john mccain or not doing well but the matter of the fact is, his message is carrying the day. >> chris: but we talked with axelrod about the real clear politics average of recent polls and the electoral map and here's a list of the key swing states i want to ask you about. you are trailing in wisconsin, you are trailing in pennsylvania, ohio, and iowa, and, as you suggest, you are basically tied in what for you is the must must-win state of virginia where the obama campaign, and we'll get to the specific states in a moment but i want to ask you about the general point. are you saying that these polls, public polls are wrong, or are you saying they may be right but you will win any way because your ground game is better and you'll turn the voters out more effect thistle than they are. >> it is like nailing jello to a tree, the polls are all over the place and they are different in each state by each day. there are two numbers to keep in mind, ac
now mr. romney is here john ess than w mccain was in 2008. not a good sign in old dominion. in ohio the romney campaign is looking for a big turn-out in southern ohio from coal country in the east on the pennsylvania, west virginia side to hamilton county cincinnati on the western side. with a big turn-out they may be able to overcome what is a substantial democratic turn-out in the northern part of the state around toledo where the detroit bail-out politics played very heavy. they keep watching and waiting recognizing that florida, ohio and virginia as they go, perhaps so goes the country, shep. >> carl cameron, thanks very much. let's get to chicago now and ed a nry following the obam campaign. of the battleground states, three of them are called. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin. all for president obama. >> big hoops and hollers here in chicago. they've got the volunteers streaming in behind me starting to come in for what they hope to be a celebration later. the president not here. he is still at his private residence. he had a family dinner. wife, children, mother-in-law, etc.
on his own terms. he was an ally to mr. romney and john mccain. this is really his first solo trip to is not cutting other people's jealousies. this was his chance to do this. he released a memoir last year. it is coming down to whether -- how he calibrates that and what kind of early support he can get. in these early voting states, state lawmakers, former state lawmakers, they are the makers in these states. everyone of them controls political support. early support really makes a difference when trying to set up county chairs. people who will let you come into their living rooms for a 15 person meeting. that support in the early voting states really makes or breaks a candidate. these are state for you have to person nd do 10-20 meetings and that is how you translate and national profile and to an early victory. host: what would your headline be? guest: just the fact that marco rubio is arriving less than 2 weeks after election day, that is an early headline. it is remarkable that they are starting to that the groundwork this early. i was just in las vegas and other candidates or
that mr. romney is exceeding the share of white vote that went to senator john mccain four years ago, that will be a sign that he is replicating the coalition that gave president george w. bush a second term. i will be stationed just below where we are right now looking at exit polling and providing the information there. what do you make of this going back to the white vote according to the "new york times"? >> i think the racial composition of the vote is one tale tell sign if we're on our bark loungers tonight watching tamron hall report. we want to know that. we want to know what's going on in virginia after the polls close at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. if virginia goes to obama, it's a long nim for governor romney. >> steve, what are you watching? which battleground state, other than your own, that you're keeping an eye on that might be telling before the end of the night? by the way, this is governor romney and congressman ryan leaving ohio right now, steve. >> i agree with michael. i'm watching virginia. polls close there before i go on the air tonight. if obama wins, i think he
better president in the second term than i was in the first. jonathan carl. >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said they want watergate-style hearings on benghazi and if you nominate susan rice to be secretary, they will do everything they can to stop that after her remarks on benghazi. >> i'm not going to comment on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and
-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, lindsay graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during, and after the attack. what's behind all this anger? jonathan alter is a columnist for bloomberg view and ron reagan is an msnbc political analyst. gentlemen, i want you to start with this. it's so unusual to see the president respond at the human level of i'm really mad and you have gone after a friend of mine. you have gone after my person at the u.n., and this is you coming at me and you're going at my character. i'm not missing the point. >> i heard from the white house yesterday that he had heard just before the press conference that mccain was talking about filibustering and he got -- >> if she were put up for secretary of state. >> and he got really angry at that, that his choice for secretary of state, which she's not yet, but that perspectively his choice would be filibustered. >> why is he so ticked, the
for sure yesterday. >>> really, the -- it's, senator john mccain, has issue with how this was handled as well as lindsay graham, and lindsay graham with a pretty fiery statement said, mr. president don't think for one minute that i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander-in-chief, before, during and after the attack. given what i know now i have no intention of promoting any one who is up to their eyeballs in the benghazi debacle. and susan rice currently u.n. ambassador, being floated as hillary clinton's successor. >> also interesting, some report going on about how, times have changed though. because obviously, many years ago when they were nominated condoleezza rice to be secretary of the state at the time, she was national security adviser she had gone around saying about the weapons of mass destruction in iraq, other intelligence. ended up proving false at the time. mccain stood by her. despite obviously the wrong information that she was disseminating at the time. saying "i am not going to mention my colleague's name. some of the rema

when it comes to american national security. >> judge jeanine: take it to the bank? mr. president, your check just bounced. here is one person determined to find the truth about benghazi. senator john mccain joins me now on the phone. good evening, senator. >> good evening, judge. i'm sorry that i'm not there to be looked at. we are in virginia and we are campaigning for mitt romney and so i'm glad to talk to you on the phone. by the way, i think your depiction of events as they have transpired everything i know is totally accurate and i want to mention to you that in traveling around virginia today i was in ohio yesterday, i was in montana before that, north dakota, i can tell you our veterans and our active duty military are angry. they have lost any trust in this commander in chief that they might have once had and i'm telling you i have never seen them so angry as they are and with good reason. >> judge jeanine: and, of course, senator, none of us can blame them. but senator, you are asking for a new committee to be created an immediate creation of a temporary select committee possi
upset. let's send this back to senator mccain. go ahead, sir. you were going to jump in and answer both of them. >> i don't expect mr. martin or mr. lizza to understand our veterans. i know them. i've seen them out there. by the way, this was the sixth -- sixth jobs bill that we have. we have six jobs programs. the point is veterans do care what happens to other veterans. veterans are upset. maybe mr. lizza doesn't understand that and i wouldn't expect him to, to tell you the truth. the fact is veterans care about this and there's been a cover-up for seven weeks. for seven weeks we haven't been able to get an answer out of the president of the united states. mr. lizza and mr. martin, i respect their views. i don't think it's grounded in any experience. i thank you for having me on. >> hold on one second. margaret hoover, jump in, please. >> senator mccain's right. also these are key states. colorado, virginia, florida, nevada where you have large military populations. and this is one of several issues that people are considering. even if jobs and the economy is at the top, this is part
